and peace report. i'm amy goodman. the obama administration has agreed to show two congressional panels the stated legal rationale for assassinating u.s. citizens overseas. on thursday, the white house directed the justice department to release a controversial 2010 memo to the house and senate intelligence committees. the memo details the administration's legal justification for targeting the american-born cleric anwar al awlaki, who ultimately died in u.s. drone strike in yemen. the memo's release follows growing calls from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle for access to the administration's guidelines for drone strikes and other attacks targeting u.s. citizens overseas. a bipartisan senate letter demanding the memos earlier this week had accused the white house of "practicing secret law." it also follows this week's leaking of a white memo that allows for the killing of americans through an expansive definition of what constitutes an imminent threat. at a news conference in washington, attorney general eric holder was asked what he is releasing the drone memos publicly after disclo

"in full accordance with the law." we know that they do think it's legal. but they won't say why they think it's legal. the closest we have come to learning about how the obama administration justifies drone strikes is this. in the fall of 2011, "new york times" reporter charlie savage wrote this story. this is about a week after al awlaki was killed. the story describes a super secret 50-page memo written by an office within the justice department that effectively serves as the obama's administration's legal justification for why they think it's okay to kill an american citizen without a trial. now "the new york times" did not actually get to see this memo. they did not publish the memo, nor did they quote from it directly. the momentum mow was described to the reporter by anonymous sources. and that's when things got really weird, because after the "times" reported on the existence of the me
